Prepare T4 Slips

Generally, you need to complete a T4 slip if you are an employer and you paid your employees employment income, commissions, taxable allowances and benefits, fishing income, or any other remuneration.

If you file more than 50 T4 slips for a calendar year, you must file the return over the Internet.

More information is available on the CRA web site (search for T4 slip): http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/
